How do I know if I should contact a lawyer?
If someone else’s careless or negligent behavior led you to sustain a serious injury, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit to hold them accountable. An experienced lawyer can review your situation and determine whether you have a case. CaseyGerry offers free initial consultations, and there is no obligation when you call or fill out our online form.
What will filing a spinal cord injury lawsuit do for me?
Filing a lawsuit will allow you to seek compensation for your medical bills and the wages you’ve lost (and will continue to lose) as a result of your injury. Your lawyer may also seek damages for pain and suffering and other related losses. While nothing can change what happened, pursuing a spinal cord injury lawsuit can help ease the resulting financial burden.
If I file a personal injury lawsuit for my spinal cord injury, who might the defendants be?
Anyone whose careless behavior led to the incident that caused your spinal cord injury (and any other injuries you sustained) may be held accountable in court.
How much is my case worth?
Every lawsuit is different. How much a case is worth depends on a variety of factors, such as:
The pain, and severity of your spinal cord injury,
How active you were before the incident,
The cost of treating your spinal cord injury,
How much income you have lost as a result of your injury,
The long-term or permanent impairments, disfigurement, or disabilities you have suffered,
The physical and/or emotional suffering you have experienced because of your spinal cord injury, and
Your past and future medical bills, lost earnings, opportunities, etc.
These and other factors will help determine the value of your case. An experienced spinal cord injury lawyer can review the circumstances of your individual case to determine the amount you might receive in compensation. You can reach CaseyGerry at (619) 238-1811.
